Home Much Traffic are you guys getting from youtube?
used to be about 1,000+ a day back a year ago but the niche i used backed then is way to saturated now
oh ill add that the niche was anime streaming.. i used about 2-3 videos per week
thanks for your answer. So did you upload 3 videos every week? I plan to outsource Youtube account creation. I then want to upload 10 videos to each account. I want to get around 5k visitors a day. How much work would I have to put in this?
Depending on how popular the vids are... not much work
For 5k Visitors will take some work! Unless you can get on the first page of your category for a couple of videos every week 2 of my sites are only getting 150 daily from tube and one was getting 1k daily with 1 video weekly (TV shows)
if its movie, anime, tv show niche, you will get traffic in the masses if you upload videos named next week releases
tough to say....
500+ from google 500+ from youtube (estimating)
used to have direct links from youtube now i just watermark everything...
this way my source of traffic is google or type in (cant beat that)
having youtube be your visable source of traffic really turns off affiliates...
social media can build up your traffic mad fast but the conversions stink
I spend more time with SEO optimization. pays off better in the long run.
plus with youtube plan on "maintenance" . you will get videos taken down. you will get accounts deleted. got to keep replacing/uploading vids.....
we have about 425 videos on our youtube, 5700 subscribers and get about 14k views a day...
ok thanks for all your anwers. I will gave a go at it.
Just a quick warning about YouTube, type-in traffic and
thinking your source is invisble to your merchants and affiliates managers.
Read my thread and be as amazed as I was...
And this not only happened with YT.
I saw it with every vid-site in my stats after I took a good look at them!!
damn. that sucks. My SEO is doing good but it looks like I'll have to focus more on it. I like youtube for quick boosts but hate everything else about it. One day I hope I can rely soley on google instead of vid sites.
I am finding that all things being equal in a popular niche, the shorter and more memorable the website address is that you want them to go to, the more people come across.
You might want to bear this in mind... make sure that its easy enough for 'stupid' people to spell too ;-)
Use "plain" everyday words for your domain-names.
Not only "stupid" people will be able to spell it but also the non-english speaking.
My experience is that with YT traffic it doesn't matter if the domain-name is not related to the product your promoting.
Just keep it short and simple.
I had about 5 accounts, 10 videos on each, promoting dating. I made about $300 in 1 month, getting 300 uniques a day to my landing page. The offer paid $3/lead.
Once I get some other things going, I am going to re-up on videos/accounts and start over. i had my URL banned, so any video I up will get the account suspended after a few days if I use my landing page URL in the description. Something I learned is to just make your watermark easy to read. If they were going to go, the will type it in. You can also start using redirects using blogspot and tinyurl. Use a different TinyURL link for each accounts videos.
I have about 60 videos and average 1500 hits per day on my site and make about $300 to $500 per month.. with I think is 8 active YT accounts. YT is my only avenue for hits I do no SEO and could give a Sh*t less if the G ever picks up my sites. One of the things I do is when I have a video banned I move on to the next account and post nothing more on the old one.
Do you buy bulk accounts, or just create them yourself ?
I've gotten about 200 leads in the past 7 days off about two videos. resulting in 21 free trial signups, making about $300 a week in just bonuses. The past week was thanksgiving and I'm just getting started. I wasn't really on much.. could of done better i think. I like this youtube marketing thing. I was really having trouble with craigslist posting, and have gotten great results from myspace and MAINLY youtube just because of finding BHW...
I haven't even came by here because I've been so busy trying new things. But hope this inspires some1!
Also, for the post above, I buy my youtube accounts really cheap $30-35 bucks for 1000 accounts. You can really make a bunch of money with them 1000 accounts.... hint!
$30-35 bucks for 1000 accounts is really cheap. Where do you buy them, if it's not a secret..?
thanks for sharing your ideas, this has certainly inspired me !
